M1 launches Pinnacle, its 5G powered MEC platform for enterprises
M1 has announced the launch of Pinnacle, a Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC) platform designed to help businesses embrace digital transformation and new technologies like augmented reality and virtual reality (AR/VR), live video analytics, and industrial IoT (Internet of Things).
It will be jointly powered by M1’s purpose-built 5G SA network and ST Engineering’s AGIL Edge Platform for 5G.
Pinnacle can deploy and manage mission-critical applications, reducing latency, bandwidth consumption, and network congestion by bringing computation and storage closer to the edge of the network.
Manjot Singh Mann, Chief Executive Officer, M1. said:
The time is now right to embrace 5G and edge computing. Pinnacle solutions aim to optimise infrastructure and streamline data usage with faster speeds and better performance that 5G promises. The sum of these technologies are more than its parts and together – it creates a next-gen solution platform that is truly empowering for enterprises, opening new avenues of business opportunities for a more intelligent and connected society.
Republic Polytechnic’s School of Engineering is amongst the first of Pinnacle’s early adopters and aims to support the logistics sector by harnessing edge computing to help optimise business operations and reduce operating expenses through real-time monitoring and control of critical and time-sensitive materials, including the use of camera-mounted drones. In addition, the polytechnic seeks to leverage Pinnacle for robotics and augmented reality to enrich its students’ learning experiences and embrace emerging trends.
We reached out to M1 regarding a website or where interested customers could as for more information regarding Pinnacle but didn’t receive any response in time. We will update this article when we receive more information.
